Click here to submit your Santa Letter.
The Rappahannock Record will publish letters to Santa in its Christmas Greetings special section on Wednesday, December 23. All letters are needed by 5 p.m. Friday, December 11.

This year—since some schools are in person, some are working in a hybrid situation, and some are fully virtual—the Rappahannock Record is requesting that children write and send in their individual letters to Santa directly to the Record, instead of depending on the teachers and schools to help organize this effort.

Parents are urged to encourage their children to write a letter to Santa and submit it on time. The Rappahannock Record looks forward to sharing all the wishes with Santa each year.

Letters should be written with a dark pencil or ink and include the child’s first and last name, age and hometown. Parents are asked to make certain the letters are legible. The letters should be short and concise so Santa can read them quickly.

Please include a phone number in case Santa has questions. The phone number will not be published.

Email letters to editor@rapprecord.com, send to Rappahannock Record, P.O. Box 400, Kilmarnock, VA 22482, or deliver them to the Record office at 27 North Main Street. There is a special “Santa slot” in the front door.
